2008 Merlot Reserve, Thelema*
Western Cape / South Africa
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Drink with full flavoured dishes such as slow braised lamb shank, roasted wild boar or duck.
With enormous depth of colour, this wine is almost black in hue and is bursting with pure and concentrated blackcurrant aromas. The palate is full bodied and chunky with a well delineated structure of integrated, fine grained tannin and ripe toasty oak encasing the fruit flavours right through to the rounded, lengthy finish.
